Nebraska Dem Party Official Mocks Republicans After Scalise Shooting: ‘Y Is This So Funny’
Paul Crookston, Washington Free Beacon
The chairwoman of the Nebraska Democratic Party's Black Caucus is resisting pressure to resign after she called Republicans' reactions to the shooting of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) "so funny."
Chelsey Gentry-Tipton of Omaha, Neb. also wrote on Facebook that she was "having a hard time feeling bad" for Republicans, the Omaha World-Herald reported. Both comments were made Wednesday, the day of the shooting in Alexandria, Va. that injured Scalise and four others.
The chairwoman of the Nebraska Democratic Party, Jane Kleeb, has requested for Gentry-Tipton's resignation.
Gentry-Tipton said "Y is this so funny tho?" in response to a post floating the possibility that the shooter was angry about congressional Republicans' health care proposal.
